You will have one day a week to study and attend classes at BPP University. Their Law School is based in the heart of London’s legal district and has an excellent reputation for offering students the skills they need to succeed in law.
You will work in our London office, in a variety of departments such as Banking & Finance, Real Estate, Corporate and Dispute Resolution. As you progress through your apprenticeship, you will be required to produce a portfolio with examples of work you have done in your department. Examples of the type of work you will carry out are: preparing documents for a transaction, drafting a letter to a client and carrying out a piece of research.
As you progress through the programme, you will be given more responsibility, including running parts of cases and meeting with clients.
You will build a portfolio of the experience you have gained and the tasks you have completed in the workplace. You will take exams and assessments throughout the six-year programme to meet the requirements for the LLB degree. You will also be required to pass the Solicitor Regulation Authority (SRA) centralised assessment, consisting of two parts. BPP University will provide you with guidance and assistance to help you pass these assessments.
You will earn a competitive starting salary of £20,000 which will increase as you progress through the apprenticeship programme.
